Subject: [DIGLIB] Successful Strategies for Faculty Participation in Repositories

Please excuse cross postings.

I am a graduate student at Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) working towards a Master’s Degree in Library Science.

This is an invitation to participate in an anonymous Web survey, which is part of my graduate capstone research project, a requirement for my Master’s degree.

The research project is an empirical study on faculty participation in depositing content into institutional repositories.  The purpose of the survey is to determine which strategies for recruitment of faculty created content are being successfully implemented at a wide number of academic and research institutions.

If you work with an institutional repository and are aware of the strategies implemented at your institution in order to recruit content created by faculty, please help me answer this research question by responding to this short survey.

The survey is entirely anonymous.  Submission of the survey indicates consent to include the submitted data for use in this research.  This research has been reviewed according to Southern Connecticut State University IRB procedures for research involving human subjects (Protocol # 10-174).

The survey can be found by following this link:


A summary of findings will be available after January 2011 by emailing hanlonpappb1 at owls.southernct.edu<mailto:hanlonpappb1 at owls.southernct.edu>.

Thank you for your time,
